Sunset Blvd. Fence Art

Community Visioning Session

Two community visioning sessions will be held at the Renton Highlands Library to help generate ideas for artwork to be installed on the Sunset Blvd. Fence. Tuesday, January 15th: 5:30-6:30 Sunday, January 20th: 3:30-4:30 Come out and share your creative ideas!

The Sunset Blvd. Fence is a 810 ft. long fence in the Sunset Area, which is in need of upgrades. This fence is a prominent feature along the major thoroughfare in the Sunset Neighborhood. As you drive up the hill heading west, it is one of the first features you see. And the current impression it gives does not reflect the extensive public investments, nor the diverse, vibrant community in which it’s located.

This fence has the potential to be a blank canvas that can be used to welcome people to the neighborhood and build a sense of place in Sunset. This project has received funding, and we have brought two local artists on board to pursue an engaged placemaking project to create community-inspired and student-crafted public art.

This project is still being designed, but examples of fence art from other neighborhoods can be seen here.
